PULLMAN, Wash. - The Washington State University Board of Regents voted today to stop requiring and using the SAT and ACT tests in the admissions process. The plan approved by regents also recommended that WSU no longer use SAT or ACT scores in the selection process for scholarships as well as tuition waivers. “This is the trend,” Provost and Executive Vice President Elizabeth Chilton said. “I think COVID just sort of pushed a number of colleges and universities a little further along because we saw that we were able to make informed decisions without those scores.”

“WSU Tri-Cities is a hidden gem,” he said. “We are located in an area that offers great opportunities without a lot of the competition that one might experience at a much larger university. And the people who work here – our faculty, administration, staff and everyone behind the scenes – are here to make sure we all succeed. We, as students, aren’t just a number or another name on the roster.”
“I am very grateful for my experience here and the people I came to know and what I have gained as a result, getting my degree was important to me, and I wanted to finish it without accruing any student loans. The feeling of completion and accomplishment and knowing that I did well is so validating.”
“Everybody here at WSU Tri-Cities is trying to help you succeed, there are a lot of resources here if you use them, and they help you out a lot. I am very happy I came here. WSU Tri-Cities has made me realize that optometry is a competitive field and I need to be a competitive applicant. I’ve definitely gotten help every time I’ve asked for it.”
“Attending WSU Tri-Cities is probably one of the best decisions I’ve ever made, the connections I’ve made here, the mentors I’ve had, the external family that I’ve now gained as part of the WSU Cougar community, is priceless. I couldn’t be more grateful for the amazing opportunities I’ve had and people I’ve met through my experience at WSU Tri-Cities.”
